I now live and work mainly in London where I have a studio and a growing audience for my work. I have retained my ties with and love for Cornwall, dividing my time between the two places, When in London I benefit from the urban buzz of living in a mega city, finding inspiration in the huge variety of art in the galleries here. However, having been so strongly influenced by the natural beauty and cultural heritage of Cornwall over the years, I find that the subjects that offer me a glimpse of nature are still the ones that I am most drawn to. I made this small painting of a geranium whilst settling into my new home in London: it flowered late into September and seems emblematic of how domesticity can usurp creativity. Its title is 'Late Bloom' and reflects not only the circumstance of the plant but also that of my own Plutonian orbit.
